There's nothing quite like a 70's UFO documentary. They were much more fun than what we see today. Psychadelic, melodramatic, new agey, and as cheesy as a quesadilla (which would make a dandy snack to enjoy while watching this movie). This one has it all: alien abductions, military denial, pilot confrontations, Uri Geller bending keys, poorly produced UFO film footage (it must be real because the narrarator says it is), and even an invisible flying monster that swallows cows whole! A whale of a tale and it's all true! Enjoy!
As a sci-fi fan growing up in the 70's; I was a major fan of Gerry Anderson's Space: 1999. It followed the crew of Moonbase Alpha as they struggled to survive a difficult journey through space after the moon is violently separated from Earth orbit. Okay, the physics was wonky, but the show was great! The centerpiece of the series was the amazing Eagle spacecraft designed by special effects artist and model builder Brian Johnson. With it's uniquely beaked command module and an endless variety of accessories and interchangeable central pods; it was a real icon of TV sci-fi. This Konami trading kit features the standard Eagle vehicle frame with the cool rescue pod added. Enjoy!

I'm a huge fan of Gerry Anderson's Thunderbirds. Of asll the amazing rescue vehicles featured in the show; The Mole was a real showstopper. It always looked great on screen. Here is the Konami Mole diorama that I bought a few years back. It's made to look a scene from the episode City of Fire. The Mole was used to rescue a family trapped in an underground parking garage beneath a collapsed super skyscraper. Great story! The details on this little diorama are amazing. Enjoy!
